Happy New Year! While I love the holidays, I'm thrilled that December is over-what a whirlwind month. There never seems to be enough time to get everything done around the holidays (both work and personal), even if you get a head start on everything. However, it was a great end to a very insane, stressful and draining 2011. I'm so excited to start a fresh, new year on a positive note!
A few quick updates since my last post:
New website! I couldn't be happier with the new look of the site. Rob (my husband and extremely talented dude) makes me look good, his clean and stylish design really makes my paintings POP! on the site. I've got tons of new art to update on the site, come have a look.
New comics! I was lucky enough to be involved with a project called Shame Itself back in November, for Marvel. I had a short story in the book written by fabulous funny lady, Sarah Benincasa, read more about it here!
I've got a few new things up my sleeve on the comic front. Some really fun cover work that I'm thrilled about, hopefully to be unveiled in the coming months. I've also been hard at work on something of my own (finally!). I'm writing, drawing and painting a creator owned web comic that will be a real thing in about 2 weeks! This is something totally new for me (doing all the drawing, painting, writing and lettering chores) and something I should have done for myself long ago. I'll be posting some little teaser images on here next week, so be sure to stay tuned :)
Picture Books! I'm so excited to have not one but TWO picture books I've illustrated out this year! Both are up for pre-order on Amazon (My First Ghost & Pugs in a Bug) and I will be posting like crazy around the release dates (I apologize ahead of time ;) ).
Conventions for 2012! Not doing too many shows this year, but beyond thrilled to be participating in the ones we are attending! First up will be Boston Comic Con, April 21-22nd then we're off to Heroes Con, June 22nd-24th. Can't wait! I'll be accepting painted commissions pre-show only (for pick up at the shows), up until a month before the cons start. Please feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) anytime between now and then to get on the list for a painting. Speaking of commissions, the image at the top is a large commission from last month, painted for a very kind and patient gentleman! I had so much fun with this piece, thrilled it went to a great home.
I think that's it for now. Wishing everyone a great start to 2012, here's to a fabulous year! xo
